Cannabis can grow in a remarkably wide range of environmental conditions, and naturalised populations have sprung up all over the world. Now, seed companies have developed outdoor strains that are not only able to grow and thrive in specific habitats, but that are also able to consistently produce cannabinoids.
It is a nice tradition at Dutch seed company Sensi Seeds to honour people with their own namesake strain. Two well-known example are none other than cannabis legend Jack Herer and former smuggler „Mr. Nice“ Howard Marks, two legends who are sadly no longer with us. In 2006, it was the turn of US American cannabis expert author, grower and activist Ed Rosenthal. He has since been enjoying his Sensi Seeds namesake strain: ‘Ed Rosenthal Super Bud’. In this article, we will cover the story behind the strain and take you along on a growing adventure.
When a strain legend such as Skunk #1 is launched as an automatic version, the bar is set very high of course.

In this article, you’ll learn about all the relevant strain facts and the grow test’s outcome.

As a long-standing grow shop employee, I have had to look at disappointed faces from behind the counter time and time again, as ambitious home growers have only managed to produce a few sorry buds instead of the giant harvest they had been expecting.
